There's a Wolf at the Door

retold by ZoŽ B. Alley
with pictures by R. W. Alley

You may think you know The Three Little Pigs, but did you know that their names were Alan, Gordon, and Blake? Or, that Little Red Riding Hood was a fashion victim? Or, that The Boy Who Cried Wolf was really just desperate for some decent conversation?

Praise for the book:

"Oversized in every sense of the word, this comic collection of five classis tales -- all tied together by a top-hatted, polka-dot cravatted, waistcoat-wearing wolf -- abounds in graphic gaffaws."
--A Washington Post Best Book of the Year

"This is a giggly read-aloud as well as a snortingly funny read-alone. Hand it to the transitional or reluctant reader, and listen for the laughs."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"Readers drawn by the unusually large trim size and Alleyís animated, loosely posed figures will linger over the snappy dialogue."
--Kirkus, Starred Review

"The adaptations arenít so much fractured as they are elaborated for an audience primed by snarky TV humor... The wisecracking of the text is both echoed by the comic-strip format of the linked stories and balanced by the delicate drawing and pastoral tints of each panel..."
--The Horn Book, Starred Review
